Celebrate the New Orleans French Quarter with this photography
New Orleans is known for music, food, Mardi Gras and its overall laissez faire attitude. While you can’t package up the party and take it home with you, this special New Orleans print is a great way to introduce a taste of the New Orleans French Quarter into your home or office.
The print is a combination of seven iconic images depicting life in the French Quarter, from its distinctive architecture to the world’s most-famous beignet shop to the street cars that ply the city’s main thoroughfare.
Topping the print is the view of New Orleans’ famous Jackson Square as seen from Washington Artillery Park on the banks of the Mississippi River. The panoramic image includes a peak of the city’s business district on the left, moves past JAX Brewery to the canon memorializing one of the famed military units based in the French Quarter and then on to Jackson Square backed by the Cabildo, St. Louis Cathedral and the Presbytere.
Beneath this image are two columns of images. The top row includes a photograph of Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop, the country’s oldest continually operating bar dating back to the 1720s. To the right is Rev. Zombie’s Voodoo Shop, which sells items related to the practice of voodoo.
Next in line is an image of Cafe du Monde, the original beignet shop and a must for any trip to the Big Easy, before the morning onslaught of tourists and residents looking for the fried treats and chicory coffee. Next to it is a night scene looking down St. Peter Street that runs along the southwest boundary of Jackson Square.
The final row begins with a photo of Maison Bourbon, a music hall dedicated to the preservation of the jazz birthed in the city. And the last image shows one of the city’s street cars rolling along Canal Street, the main corridor that serves as the border between the French Quarter and the city’s business district.
Each image is beautiful on its own, but you can purchase them all for one low price — and the print is included in the gallery-wide Christmas sale now under way (just use the code KFTAFK for the deepest discount).
And the print can be custom matted and framed, or printed on canvas, metal or acrylic.
